Benign liver lesion: Liver hemangioma are the most common and benign liver lesions, often seen incidentally during an ultrasound exam. They have a typical appearance as a hyperechoic mass and so long as your radiologist feels that it is a typical hemangioma, there is nothing more that needs to be done.

Mostly benign: You should discuss the exact findings with your doctor or the reading doctor to make sure that you do not need any further work up.
